One year ago, on Darcy�s 15th birthday, the devastating loss of her adored older brother David (Billy Aaron Brown) completely changed her life.

On the eve of the one year anniversary of David�s accident, Darcy gets an overwhelming feeling that she can�t shake. No longer able to hide or push aside her feelings, Darcy goes on a quest to put things right in her life and the lives of her family.
